Speed and Velocity in One and Two Dimensions - This two-day physics lesson package discusses speed and velocity in both one and two dimensions, displacement, as well as vector addition, the cosine law and the sine law. It also breaks down Position and Velocity graphs. It is geared towards students who are in high school physics, either junior or senior years.
This package includes the lesson (student and teacher versions of the presentation), an auto-graded Exit Ticket, one embedded video, and a student lesson handout as a document. The presentation is fun and applicable with many opportunities for inquiry-based learning and discussion.
- "Very useful. Thank you."
- "Great way to supplement what I already had, thanks!"
In order, the lesson covers:
- Linear Motion in One Dimension
- Linear Motion in Two Dimensions
- Speed and Other Scalar Quantities
- Velocity and Other Vector Quantities
- Position and Displacement
- Position and Velocity Graphs
- Tangents and Instantaneous velocities
- Displacement and Velocity in Two Dimensions
- Vector Addition, Cosine Law and Sine Law
Included in the lesson package is:
- The teacher version of the presentation
- The student version of the presentation
- One embedded video
- An auto-graded Exit Ticket and a separate quiz with an answer key
- Student lesson handout
- This lesson includes both Office and Google formats for ALL resources. The presentation is in PowerPoint and Google Slides while all documents contain Word and Google Doc versions.
- Your resource is perfect for distance learning and integrates seamlessly with Google Classroom as I've included a link that will automatically create a copy of the resources and put them directly into your Google Drive with one click.
- Purchase --> Open --> Click --> Assign to your students
Having both options allows you to use either without worrying about formatting issues as all the work has already been done for you. It safeguards you in case your department or school decides to go Google 100% and allows you as well as your students to access everything no matter where you are or what kind of equipment is being used.
The student version of the presentation contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
